My life experiences parallel the experiences of many students now attending or moving forward to the community colleges of South Orange County. I grew up believing that college was vital to my growth as a well-rounded individual and critical to my success as a productive citizen. I began my educational career at a community college, and eventually matriculated to the University of California, Riverside, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. Eventually I earned two master’s degrees, one in Educational Leadership and Administration and the other in counseling at California State University, and continued doctoral work towards my Ed.D. 

Professionally, I am an experienced K-12 public education administrator and advocate/consultant with a strong commitment towards educational reform/justice and school choice within the public education arena. I have 22 years of experience in areas of management, relationship building, collaboration, staffing, and facilitation of programs. I have served as a school-site administrator and counselor, coordinated programs, and volunteered as a court appointed CASA advocate, education foundation board member, and community volunteer. Currently, I am the director of a 501(c)(3) educational non-profit organization.

Originally from the East Coast, I have made my home in Southern California. For the past fifteen years, I have lived in Irvine, Laguna Beach, and Dana Point. Like all residents of the South Orange County Community College District, I value our community colleges and I understand their importance to the young people who believe that community colleges are a pathway to both personal and professional success.

Filosofía política

I am seeking to serve our community as a South Orange County Community College District Trustee for Area 3, to work collaboratively and bring a new prospective to the Board of Trustees.  I strongly believe the stakeholders, which includes our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community deserve a new voice on our Board of Trustees.

My Priorities

1.   A Student Centered Focus: The South Orange County Community College District must be student centered.  Ultimately, all decisions should be made to better serve our students.

2.   Conservative Fiscal Management of the South Orange County Community College District:  
Conservative fiscal management is vital to the future success of our district.

3.   Investing in Our Faculty and Staff: Improve leadership and career growth opportunities for faculty and staff. Value our classified staff through on going increased staff development.  Address the issues and concerns of all South Orange County Community College District employees. 

4.   Protecting Educational Quality: Stress the importance of student success, student accessibility, and student completion. Provide opportunities for those students focused on certificate programs who aspire to attain their vocational goals. Provide access and attainability for students to move forward to 4-year colleges and universities. Address the issue of wide skill gaps and completion rates with our diverse student body. 

5.   Valuing Community Partnerships: Ensuring that our community college district articulates effectively with our high school, four-year college and university, and job-training partners. Open dialogue and communication with all college and community constituencies is critical to our partnerships.
